This month, we're introducing a fun, helpful new feature of the eNewsletter: Facts for FAQs.

Each month, we'll include an answer (a "fact") to a question that gets asked a lot about Air Cycle products, recycling, or regulations in the hope of keeping our readers informed and knowledgeable about these topics.

Q. Why can't I just throw my fluorescent lamps in the trash?

A. Lamps contain mercury and are in most cases considered hazardous. Because trashing lamps can cause harm to the environment and pose a health risk to facility workers, most states do not allow hazardous lamps to be disposed of in solid waste landfills.
